4  Discussion Boards / On30 / Re: Rotary snow plow that Bachmann should make and sell for about $100. on: March 09, 2018, 10:56:51 AM

   I have two snow plow's on the go  A wedge plow completed and the Rotary is coming down the home stretch, about 90% done.  adding minor details and then into the paint shop for weathering.

  The wedge plow is based on one operated on 2Ft 6 Inch gauge by FCAB in South America.

  The Rotary plow is based on xRGS #1 which was sold and operated on the 3FT gauge  Kaslo & Slocan Rly in Canada, later rebuilt and operated on the Kettle Valley Rly (aka CPR).

  Interesting to note that CWR was in service as early as  1889, the Norfolk and Western had a 3 miles stretch installed. The rail was electric welded and also used on street railways.
  Information from " The Science Of Railways" published in 1903.

  Actually there were Shovel nose version's operating in South America before the WP&Y got theirs and the the DL 535 operated also on NG line's in South America, rode behind a few of them.
   I would sooner see the Baldwin-Whitcomb 2&1/2 foot gauge units built for service in Chile
for Braden Copper Company.

  Afraid the closest you will find are kits of the 90 Class and 100 Class in S scale NG,
produced by "Railmaster Exports" in New Zealand. I have 3 of there 90 Class, one was converted to a B unit with a second end casting from them. At the time I wish I had also bought the DL 535 (100 Class) the LHS had.

   My first XMAS train set, my Dad made, it was a SW switcher 6 Sardine tins and a Caboose.
 Moved a lot of dirt during the summer!. Made of scrap plywood and 2x4 lumber. Wish I still had it. First Electric train was a TRI-ANG Suburban set from England which I still have on a shelf.

  There was a Thomas Kinkade caboose, I have one, but it is missing the roof, and ladders. Whether the caboose is still available is hard to say.

  There a surprising number of 30" gauge SHAYS still around, at least 18 some operational, most on display
from B Class 20-2, B Class 42-2  up to a C Class  60-3.( personal favorite)

  Although 23&1/2" gauge the Left Hand Drive SHAYS for San Luis de la Paz  # 757, 758, 836, 827 wold be neat to
operate and confuse people.

  Enjoyed the videos on the Burma Mines Railway, have to finish a Boxcar from Peru, then get my Rotary finished, before I tackle the BMR  Tank car shown in the video, crying out to be modelled. Collecting pieces for it, a bit at a time.
